The woman, whose name was not released pending notification of relatives, was a student diver on a boat operated by Ventura Dive & Sport diving school, Deputy Douglas Miller said. Five other student divers and two teachers were swimming from a vessel called Peace in 100 feet of water about 10 A.M. in an area called Farnsworth Bank.”

July 22, 1991 [LAT]: “Student Diver's Death Remains Unexplained Accident: Woman was found off Santa Catalina Island with oxygen in her tank. Autopsy is delayed. Officials have not determined what caused the death of a 22-year-old diving student who was discovered unconscious on the ocean floor near Santa Catalina Island with oxygen in her scuba tank, a Los Angeles County coroner's spokesman said Saturday. Rochanak Saberzadeh of Chatsworth died while diving in about 90 feet of water with five other students and two instructors in a popular diving area called Farnsworth Bank, a sheriff's spokesman on the island said. Although there was oxygen in her tank, the regulator that carries the oxygen to the diver was not in Saberzadeh's mouth when she was found, Sgt. Bob Wachsmuth said. The cause of death may not be determined until after Tuesday when the next available freight vessel is scheduled to transport the body to the mainland for an autopsy, Wachsmuth said. Saberzadeh's body remains on the island at the County-USC Hyperbaric Dive Chamber, where she was taken after the accident Friday morning.”
